Abstract


Stres akademik menjadi permasalahan yang banyak terjadi pada mahasiswa. Berbagai penyesuaian yang harus dihadapinya dalam peran dan lingkungan barunya tersebut kerapkali menjadi stressor tersendiri, terlebih bagi mahasiswa yang tidak memiliki kemampuan koping yang adaptif. Penelitian ini bertujuan untuk melihat pengaruh program pelatihan strategi koping fokus emosi untuk menurunkan tingkat stres akademik pada mahasiswa. Desain studi menggunakan metode eksperimen quasi dengan one group pretest–posttest design. Subjek dalam penelitian berjumlah 16 mahasiswa (M=19,81 tahun; SD=0,911) dari salah satu perguruan tinggi di Yogyakarta, Indonesia. Instrumen pengukuran yang digunakan meliputi Skala Koping Fokus Emosi dan Skala Stres Akademik. Analisis statistik paired sample t-test menunjukkan bahwa pelatihan strategi koping fokus emosi terbukti dapat menurunkan stres akademik pada mahasiswa dengan t(15)=2,149; p=0,048 (p<0,05). Hasil penelitian ini diharapkan dapat dijadikan sebagai referensi intervensi bagi program kesehatan mental di perguruan tinggi.
